Department for Education Furniture Framework

Apteriors are delighted to be one of the providers selected for the Department for Education (DfE)’s Furniture Framework. It is quicker and easier for a school to buy from the DfE’s Furniture Framework than getting bids or quotes because we have already been through a fully competitive tender process, have been quality checked, and have complied with relevant laws. We are looking forward to working with schools through the DfE’s Furniture Framework, creating new practical environments which are suitable for teaching, office, and social environments.
